12. Kerry Rhodes' Leaked Photos

Last spring, pictures showing NFL player Kerry Rhodes looking intimate with another man surfaced online, leading the veteran safety to deny rumors that he's gay. He claimed that they were just pictures of his ex-assistant, Russell "Hollywood" Simpson; Simpson says the two were a couple. The photos included shots of the pair embracing shirtless and laying on a bed, with Rhodes appearing to kiss Simpson, who claims to have more pictures showing them looking like "the black Brokeback Mountain." Despite the fact that Rhodes was considered one of the best players at his position last year, he was cut by the Arizona Cardinals and hasn't been signed by any other team.
